Working with Hide Glue—Hammer Veneer a Sunburst Veneer Top with Steve Latta
The use of hide glue and hammer veneering goes back thousands of years. The walls of ancient Egyptian tombs portray craftsmen sawing veneers, mixing glue in a pot and laying those veneers down with the same hammer technique that is just as effective today as it was back then. Why this ancient technique has fallen out of favor eludes me. It offers a no-nonsense, streamlined approach to veneering allowing for complex patterns and quick repairs or “do-over’s” as the need arises. Join nationally known furniture maker, Steve Latta for this information packed two day workshop where we will take a hard look at hide glue and its characteristics, veneers, their preparation and usage, and the hammer veneering technique for laying them down. We’ll focus on a few simple projects such as a fielded drawer front and work our way up to the pie-pattern of a demilune top. Sign up today- this is a class you will not want to miss!
